Got the summertime blues? Go on a long, strange tour with me through time. Every day in the month of July, we’ll feature a vintage recording from the Dead. Tune in on YouTube and join the chat as we explore the wonders of summer tours past. We will get by, we will survive!
The next stop on our We Will Get By Streaming Tour is the summer of 1972. It’s hard to find a bad Dead show from 1972. It’s also equally hard to find a bad Dead show in Portland, OR.
This show is highlighted by one of the most massive and magnificent “The Other One” jams the Dead ever delivered. Also there are noteworthy versions of “He’s Gone,” “China > Rider” and “Wharf Rat” from the second set.
